Very good ambience and even better food. The menu has a lot of options for meat eaters . Even though my friend accompanying me was a vegetarian , the steward helped us with a very good starter and an equally good main course. Evenings are pleasant in Muscat hence the experience is even better when seated outside on the terrace.

We had our 35th Wedding Anniversary here and chose their set menu which was brilliant. The staff were very attentive withour being overbearing, nothing was too much trouble. Part of the food choice was a Duck dish which saw a very talented Chef come to the table and present a cooked duck which with a great sense of pride and... More

We mostly used the Al Bustan hotel restaurants, unless one is using the buffet on half board, there are only really two a la carte restaurants which is far too few for a hotel of this size and status. The China Mood was good, we went three times during our stay at the hotel. Service was excellent. Dinner starts with... More

We had a memorable Birthday dinner on the terrace of China Mood . Great variety and choice of Dimsums, but would be better to choose individually rather than order the platter I think. We had Peking duck carved at our table , really tender and delicious. My son felt all grown up rolling his own duck pancakes. The tea dance... More

High quality food, with a very attentive and personal service in the private rooms. We were a vegetarian family and they were more than happy to accommodate a special menu just for us !!

We had a five star dinner at the terrace of Al Bustan. Pricey but excellent quality and service. Dim sums to be recommended.

We enjoyed a Chinese Banquet at China Mood sitting under the coloured Chinese lanterns on Boxing Day. The restaurant was busy when we first arrived but we ended up being the last to leave! There was a set Festive Menu which we greatly enjoyed. The food is really good and the crispy duck in particular was sensational. A lady performed... More
